I have been so busy organizing workshops out of State, I hadn’t even stopped to think about doing one close to home! Silly me! It’s HAPPENING!!!!
Saturday, August 4th. Here. A mile from my house, I am renting out a beautiful space at my current school and we are going to spend the entire day learning together! I will be presenting my FAVORITE strategies to keep listening, reading, writing, and culture NOVEL throughout a year of Comprehensible Input instruction. My classroom management tips and tricks will be littered throughout and of course, you’ll walk away with a myriad of fantastic Brain Break ideas too!
I chose the 4th of August, in a hope to catch a lot of you at the end of your summer, right as you’re gearing up for the next school year! You’re sure to walk away eager, and energized for the next school year as well as highly entertained, that is just a guarantee. It is worth sacrificing a Saturday!
Here are the nitty gritty details:
- The cost of the workshop is $40 (to cover the cost of the venue, breakfast and videographers)
- I will provide you with breakfast-y yumminess as well as coffee and tea in the morning
- You will be responsible for bringing your own lunch
- We will only take a 45 minute lunch break so we can maximize our time together
- The workshop (in its entirety) will be filmed by two professional videographers and will be used for marketing for future workshops around the country
- You will be provided with a certificate of completion to track hours spent on Professional Development
I have really enjoyed teaching full day workshops this year! I love being able to really dig deep with teachers and we can do so much more with 7 hours than we can with a one hour long presentation in a conference! I recently did a workshop in North Carolina which was set up and promoted by Mike Peto . People from 6 different states were in attendance! Afterwards, I received this email from a teacher (she has allowed me to share it here).
I’m having the absolute BEST week of my teaching career after attending your workshop last Saturday. Right now I find myself between jumping up and down and screaming for joy and crying for PURE gratitude to have met you, attended your workshop and to be a teacher!! Teaching and working with people has always been my passion, but something was missing and now I’ve found it, thanks to you. I’m in tears. I’m so grateful. My students don’t want to leave my class. They LOVE learning Spanish and JUST THIS WEEK, IN JUST THESE FEW DAYS, THEY’VE LEARNED SO MUCH. Not only that they’ve learned so much, but that they LOVE learning. They LOVE speaking Spanish. They feel compelled to speak and be engaged in English, Spanish and Espanglish! How ever they do it, they are showing comprehension. AAAAAAAlleluiah! AAAAAAAlleluiah! Alleluia! Alleeeeeeeluuuuuuia!!!!!! I have so much more to learn though AND I’M ON FIRE!!! Ready to do it! Gracias, GRAcias, GRACias, GRACIAs, MIL GRACIAS.
